CHILDREN WHO EXPERIENCE SIGNIFICANT SCHOOL ADJUSTMENT PROBLEMS.
MCGAHAN, F.E.
GALENA PARK'S PROGRAM FOR EARLY DETECTION AND INDIVIDUAL PROGRAMING FOR CHILDREN WITH SUSPECTED SCHOOL ADJUSTMENT DIFFICULTIES HAS IDENTIFIED MAJOR PROBLEM AREAS INTO WHICH SUCH CHILDREN USUALLY FALL. APPROXIMATELY 10 PERCENT OF THE CHILDREN EXAMINED ARE THOSE WHOSE MOTOR COORDINATION IS DELAYED OR FAULTY. SUCH CHILDREN ARE THE MOST LIKELY TO BE UNABLE TO RESPOND FAVORABLY IN THE LEARNING SITUATION. ABOUT FIVE PERCENT OF THE CHILDREN ARE UNABLE TO TAKE DIRECTIONS. APPROXIMATELY FIVE PERCENT ARE UNABLE TO UNDERSTAND AND TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES IN WRITTEN AND SPOKEN WORD. (MEDICAL HISTORY IS OFTEN SIGNIFICANT IN THESE CASES.) APPROXIMATELY TWO PERCENT ARE RESTLESS AND HYPERACTIVE. THE OVERLY ANXIOUS CHILD OFTEN DISPLAYS A HISTORY OF VARIOUS TYPES OF TRAUMA WHICH CAUSE DIFFICULTIES IN ADJUSTING TO THE LEARNING SITUATION. PSYCHOLOGICAL DISORDERS ARE HIGHLY CORRELATED WITH THE MAJOR PHYSIOLOGICALLY AND SOCIALLY DETERMINED CAUSATIONS. WHEN APPROPRIATE TEACHING METHODS ARE APPLIED, AND WHEN AN EFFORT IS MADE TO UNDERSTAND THE CAUSATIVE FACTORS INVOLVED, ABOUT 65 PERCENT OF THESE CHILDREN CAN BE MOVED FROM SPECIAL CLASSES INTO REGULAR CLASSES.
